For the kids who think "King of America" is Elvis Costello's best album

Secret, Profane, and Sugarcane , the latest release by Elvis Costello, is dominated by acoustic music, heralding a return to the musical style of his 1986 album, King Of America . Ever the storyteller, Costello's lyrics feature musings on Hans Christian Anderson, P.T. Barnum, and the abolitionist movement. Costello also offers his second collaboration with Loretta Lynn on track "I Felt The Chill."

Strongly disagree I have many issues with this ranking but...
